Well, dang it, NASCAR, you've just gone nuts...
Suddenly, its 1978!
Seems like them NASCAR techs got hold of a`70s car-trend magazine with a Porsche 928 V8 feature,
"Hell, reckon we should utilize that new-fangled Euro 'stock car' design y'know, being as we're now
here in the 3rd decade of the 21st century, & we'll boast 'bout how real progressive we're done getting.
Yeah, add a`60s style - automatic transmission linear shift pattern - for our gear-stick, too! Hoo-wee!"
"Well, we knocked the bastard off!"

(& 1st to do a surface traverse across Antarctica,
in good Kiwi style - riding a Massey Ferguson farm
tractor - with a few extemporised mod's to hack the task).
